Prologue

Rusty: Hey, It's great to be here tonight! You all look beautiful, ya know that? I mean the folks from 5? Me, I come from a very small planet. I'm talking tiny!

Ventrilomatic: Can't you quantify its size?

Rusty: I planted some seeds the other day, and they sprouted in the other hemisphere!

Ventrilomatic: A celestial body of that small scale cannot be categorized as a planet.

Rusty: You said it! Our weatherman has to change his forecast whenever someone sneezes.

Ventrilomatic: To reiterate, a celestial body of that small scale cannot be....

Rusty: Whenever the moon orbits past, you have to duck! or our sun gets dimmer when you try to make toast! hey, did you hear about the 16 armed martians who met the 18 armed Venusians?

Midgel & Fidgel: We're gonna tell you all a story of a surfin' sensation

All: Space surfin' superstar!

Midgel & Fidgel: Yeah, his runaway pride was his ruination

All: Space surfin' superstar!

Midgel & Fidgel: Down at Blastoff Beach, yeah, the party was movin'. They were swingin' and swayin' everybody was groovin'

All: Space surfin' superstar! Space surfin' superstar! Space surfin' superstar!

Midgel & Fidgel: No one noticed on that fateful day, When a long tall stranger came their way

All: Space surfin' superstar!

All: Space surfin' superstar!

Cowboy: He's comin'! He's comin'!

Kevin: Who? Who is it? The President? Buzz Aldrin? Robert Goulet? Larry the Cucumber?

Cowboy: Even better! It's him! The King of the Surfers! The Pride of Blastoff Beach! It's the Big Luna Kahuna!

Aliens: *cheer for Luna Kahuna*

Luna Kahuna (Zidgel): Please, please, no applause. Your slavish fawning is enough.

Cowboy: Shoot that curl!

Luna Kahuna: Well, maybe just one curl.

Aliens: *cheer*

All: Space surfin' superstar!

Midgel & Fidgel: He was tanned, he was grand. Really knew how to pose now

All: Space surfin' superstar!

Midgel & Fidgel: He was the Luna Kahuna. With his toes on the nose now

All: Space surfin' superstar!

Midgel & Fidgel: But he should have known that his puffed-up pride, Was settin' him up for a radical ride

Kevin: *plays drum solo, then gets his head caught between the cymbals* Oops, sorry.

Ventrilomatic: Bovine-abunga, dude.

All: Space surfin' superstar!

Cowboy: Hey, y'all! Looky yonder!

Aliens: Who is that space surfer?

Fidgel: Say, look at that.

All: Space surfin' superstar!

Midgel & Fidgel: Yeah, the long tall stranger was wowin' the chicks. He was catchin' the waves and hangin' six

All: Hangin' six

Midgel & Fidgel: But the Luna Kahuna wasn't satisfied now

All: Space surfin' superstar!

Midgel & Fidgel: To share the spotlight for even one ride, now

All: Space surfin' superstar!

Fidgel: He's going to attempt the Triple Foonman!

Midgel: Oh, no! The most dangerous stunt known to surfdom!

Cowboy: But nobody's ever tried to do...

Aliens: The Triple Foonman!

Fidgel: Kahuna, no!

Cowboy: There he goes!

Midgel: But his haughty spirit wouldn't heed the call. He forgot that pride

All: Comes before a--

Zidgel: *gets knocked into cliff*

Midgel: Oh no! He's being pulled out into deep space by the vicious Andromedan Riptide!

Ventrilomatic: Only a surfing prodigy could save him from that dangerous current.

Fidgel: Somebody help him! Save him, please!

Kevin: What? Oh! Righty-oh!

Midgel: Look! The portly yet heroic stranger is surfing backwards! Against the waves!

Ventrilomatic: I have never observed such daring behavior.

Midgel & Fidgel: Yeah, the long tall stranger. He was totally tube now

All: Space surfin' superstar!

Midgel & Fidgel: He mastered the waves. And he rescued the rube now

All: Space surfin' superstar!

Midgel & Fidgel: Yeah, the Luna Kahuna had learned that pride. Is too big a wave for anyone to ride. And the long tall stranger, to his surprise. Is now the one they idolize. 'Cause he's a

All: Space surfin' superstar.
